Future Battery for the Electric Car
Watching lithium sulfur batteries in action with an X-ray microscope, Stanford researchers have shown that when sulfur forms polysuflites during use only a small amount of enters the electrolyte. It’s enough to produce a large capacity loss. Armed with the facts, we’ll have better batteries within the decade.
A student-built, battery-powered racer aims not only to break the world land speed record but to be the world’s first electric car to hit 400 mph.
Current trends in automotive engineering largely focus on improving engine efficiency and fuel economy.
The Internal Combustion Engine Division of ASME has been promoting the art and science of mechanical engineering of engines, encouraging and fostering research and development for mobile, marine, rail, generation and stationary applications and summarizing and publishing reliable data concerning these pursuits since 1921.
